Discovery Centre (across from the Festival Theatre)

55 Queen St., Stratford, ON

10:30 a.m. to 12: 30 p.m.  – Mini-Conference: The Questions of Cultural Appropriation in Arts Education

Facilitated by charles smith – CPAMO (Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario) Project Leader – this session will begin an informal dialogue about cultural representation and appropriation within our work in schools and communities.

This is our opportunity to share our experiences and begin a common understanding.
